China Wants US to Bar Taiwan From Trump Inauguration

The United States should not allow a delegation from Taiwan to attend the inauguration of US president-elect, Donald Trump, China's Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday, raising a new bone of contention in Beijing's relations with the incoming government.
Trump broke with decades of precedent last month by taking a congratulatory telephone call from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, and he has also said the "One China" policy was up for negotiation, a position Beijing strongly rejected, Reuters reported.
A Taiwan delegation, led by former premier and ex-ruling party leader, Yu Shyi-kun, and including a Taiwan national security adviser and some lawmakers, will attend Friday's inauguration, Taiwan's Foreign Ministry said this week.
It is typical for Taiwan to send a delegation to US presidential inaugurations.
A spokesman for Taiwan president's office said no meetings were scheduled with the new Trump administration while the delegation was there for the event.
China considers Taiwan a breakaway province, with no right to have any kind of diplomatic relations with other countries.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, said China was opposed to Taiwan using any excuse to send people to the United States to "engage in activities to interfere in or damage China-US ties".
"We again urge the relevant side in the United States not to allow the Taiwan authority to send a so-called delegation to the United States to attend the presidential inauguration and not have any form of official contact with Taiwan," Hua told a regular news briefing.
"China's position has already accurately and unmistakably been given to the US administration and Trump's team."
Hua added that China's ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, will attend the inauguration on its behalf.
Trump is to be sworn into office on Friday.

China needs to butt out of America's relations with Taiwan. China has absolutely no right to tell other countries how to recognize other people's. Americans need to remember the means in which Taiwan formed and insist that our government stop pandering to the communist dictatorship that rules over the vast Chinese population. Frankly, it completely defies logic that such a small group of people think they've got the right to rule over so many people. Frankly, it's time that the vast majority in China stand up for their rights and simply overthrow the crooks that call themselves the party elite...that old group of extremely corrupt politicians in Chana who make up the core of China's corrupt communist government.
